Thank you a lot Melissa, I didn't even know it existed, and now I'm now building mine :)

Do you have a tip for faster picking your photos when feeding a gallery ? I mean it is very boring to see the images 8 by 8, when you have to search for your 400th image, you have to click on the 'next' button 50 times, then you have to do it again for the next one :D In some dA similar windows we can type a part of the image title, or at least have a 32 thumbs view ...

Congrats on the DD :clap:, your tutorial is very well done (I mean it takes 5 minutes to be operational), and thanks again ! Have great times !

You're welcome! I'm glad it was helpful to you! To answer you question, a faster way to add images to your portfolio galleries is to do a basic upload from your computer (similar to the process of submitting a deviation).

Of course, you're so right ... I stupidly had the idea to stay referencing images into dA, but the two worlds are disconected ...
Very kind of you, thank you Melissa for answering so quickly ... and for giving a good tip :D !

I went through the process, because this piqued my curiosity, and it appears that free members only have the option of [nameofsite].daportfolio.com; just a note to anybody else who was wondering.

Can this be used for writing or would it be for visual art primarily?
